Adaptive speciation has gained popularity as a fundamental process underlying the generation of diversity. We tested whether populations respond to similar forms of disruptive selection by diversifying in similar or parallel ways by investigating diversified populations of Escherichia coli B evolved in glucose and glucose-acetate environments. In both environments, the populations have differentiated into two phenotypes, named for their characteristic colony morphologies: large (L) and small (S… CONTINUE READING
